Neuroimaging in Psychiatry

The 2013 World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics, 17-21 October 2013, is taking place at an exciting time in the field of mental health research when an increasing number of genetic risk factors for psychiatric disorders are being identified, diagnostic boundaries and criteria are being re-evaluated and new ways to integrate the underlying biology with clinical diagnosis are being sought. Symposia submission is now open with a deadline of 4 March.  We encourage you to submit your work and be an active participant.
